Rights Unit Finds Bias Against Transgender Student
Coy Mathis, 6, center, played video games in March while at home in Fountain, Colo., with her sister Dakota, left, and their mother, Kathryn. By DAN FROSCH Published: June 23, DENVER A Colorado school district discriminated against a transgender first grader when it refused to let her use the girls bathroom, the states civil rights division has determined, a decision gay and transgender advocates say will have an indelible impact on how such cases are handled in the future.
In a sharply worded ruling, the division concluded that the Fountain-Fort Carson School District needlessly created a situation in which the student, Coy Mathis, would be subject to harassment when it barred her from the girls bathroom even though she clearly identified as female.
Telling Coy that she must disregard her identity while performing one of the most essential human functions constitutes severe and pervasive treatment, and creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive, Steven Chavez, the division director, wrote in the decision.
The dispute over whether Coy, 6, should be allowed to use the girls bathroom was seen by some as a critical test of how state antidiscrimination laws were applied to transgender students.
Born biologically a boy, Coy began identifying as a girl after just a few years, growing her wispy blond hair long, wearing dresses, and telling family and friends they should refer to her as female.
During kindergarten, Coys parents informed her school that their child identified as a girl and should be treated as one. Initially, the school, just south of Colorado Springs, agreed.

only two words needed in the face of this lunancy:
Just what kind of parents are indulging these kinds of fantasies in their kids — and this early, too?
The world is clearly much more evil and lunatic than before.
But. The important 2 words are not home school.
They are Almighty God.
ok - my 2 words are a means to your 2 word end :)
Look for a parent with an agenda and a big chip on her shoulder.
Do those parents need me to come over there with a fishing pole and a BB gun?
Better yet, arrest the parents of the child they are perverting. If this kids bathroom plumbing was designed for the boys room, then that is where he is to go.
Yes, a means of yielding to Almighty God.
This is so bad it is harrowing. It would have been treated as arrant child abuse very few decades ago.
Teach that boy to be a real boy!!
Aiding and abetting a six year old’s delusions is Child Abuse!
A six year old? The mother laughing sitting next to him in the picture? This is child abuse. The world has taken that step from insane to criminally insane. Pure evil.
There’s a spiritual dimension behind this too and it is demonic.
Two more: child abuse.
The picture shows Coyy sitting next to “her” sister. I wonder what sex “her” sister is.
I am willing to hold firm on the transgender issue because if we grant special rights to these people they will use their new found power to impose themselves on others and flaunt their life style and appearance on every one they meet
The next step after the recognition and mainstreaming of transponders will be a push for the rights of members of NAMBLA , the North American Man Boy Love Association
Good Lord! If he thought he was a dog would they insist he be allowed to water a tree?
“Her” and “she” refer to what, exactly?
